a building method that refers to Minoan arched tombs. Greek Mounts are covered by snow almost half of the year, therefore a mitato is the summer residence for shepherds, when the flocks can pasture at higher altitudes. This «spepherd’s igloo», has circular shape and is built of limestone stones, that ones meet around, merged together without mortar.
